As a reaction to Senator Corkers tweet:
 "Senator Bob Corker  @SenBobCorker

It's a shame the White House has become an adult day care center. Someone obviously missed their shift this morning."


On the opposite of adult day care they tell tales like those (unfortunately I can't link to Wikipedia due to protection of minors).
But everyone remember this tale collected by Brothers Grimm:

(T)rumpelstiltskin


I think this should be his new name. it fits.

And now he's challenged Tillerson to an IQ test-off.

Yeah, right. Better get some crayons ready for Little Donny!

Once again, H. L. Mencken proves to be a prophet.

Quote

The larger the mob, the harder the test. In small areas, before small electorates, a first-rate man occasionally fights his way through, carrying even the mob with him by force of his personality. But when the field is nationwide, and the fight must be waged chiefly at second and third hand, and the force of personality cannot so readily make itself felt, then all the odds are on the man who is, intrinsically, the most devious and mediocre -- the man who can most easily adeptly disperse the notion that his mind is a virtual vacuum.

The Presidency tends, year by year, to go to such men. As democracy is perfected, the office represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. We move toward a lofty ideal. On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart's desire at last, and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron.

-- "Bayard vs. Lionheart", in the 26 July, 1920, issue of the Baltimore Evening Sun

"When your city is French in origin, and your Mayor and Governor are Democrats, and those most affected by this natural disaster are Black, don't expect much help from Bush." -- Left of Y'all (and the link works now too! )

So according to the Washington Post, El Presidente Trump not only called the father of a soldier killed in Afghanistan, but also promised to send the father $25,000. The father expressed frustration that his son had designated Baldridge’s ex-wife as the beneficiary for his military death benefits, about $100,000. Now people say a lot of things when they are emotionally distraught like this, so let's ignore the bit about the money going to his son's ex.

What matters here is that Trump immediately promised to personally send the father $25,000. When Dad got a letter from the White House soon afterwards, he opened it in eager anticipation. Imagine his surprise when it was nothing but a plain condolence letter!

Anyway, once the WaPo story broke, according to CNN, the White House immediately came out and said, "The Check is in The Mail".

Why is this in Funny Politics?

Here's what one of our finest news sources says the check looks like:

To try and show just how absurdly obsequious and North Korean-media-esque the Lou Dobbs "interview" was:

An ex-Twitter employee is now an Internet hero after briefly deactivating the personal Twitter account of the current occupant of the White House. The social media company issued a statement after the account was returned to the site, later adding that a customer support employee had used their last day at the company to deactivate it, and that "we are conducting a full internal review."

Needless to say, it garnered quite a few reactions on the social media site itself, mostly in favor of the anonymous ex-employee.

El Presidente stopped off in Honolulu (the birthplace of our last president) as the first stop on his Asian tour.

Some residents showed up to welcome him.

Oh man, Carter Page's testimony before the House Intelligence Committee is a laugh riot!

He claims the Steele Dossier made him "radioactive". And because of that "dodgy dossier" (his term), he doesn't feel safe anymore. He can't remember who he met with on his visits to Russia, or even if they really had an actual meeting or just passed each other on the street. He has no fixed abode because of "terrorist threats":

MR. SWALWELL: Where do you currently live?

MR. PAGE: I have - due to the terrorist threats -

MR. SWALWELL: No. Where do you live?

MR. PAGE: I don't have any set address right now.


Apparently, he keeps crashing on people's couches - but he can't remember any of their names.

He went to Russia in December of last year, and may or may not have stopped off in London on the way there or on the way back - he doesn't remember. But whatever the case, he certainly didn't meet with any Russians there!

Then Rep. Adam Schiff asked him about a trip to Brussels, and Page answered about a trip to Budapest. When pressed, he can't remember where he stayed (in Budapest, not Brussels), or what he talked about with the officials he met there.

Then more whining about death threats and the like.

Seriously, read some excerpts. It's nuts.
